Back in October we brought you news of artist Hetain Patel’s creation of a Ford Fiesta real life transformer. Now we have an even better time lapse video to show you how it was built.
A British Ford Fiesta might not be the most glamourous of Transformers, not compared to the Bumblebee and co anyway, but it was Patel’s first car so what better way to make the most out of an old banger!
Patel is also quick to state that this creation isn’t a symbol of the frivolous popular culture but something that has much deeper meaning: “the car is not a high-powered sports car or truck transformed into a powerful warrior, but a small inexpensive Ford Fiesta transformed into a human-like figure calmly squatting. This posture forges a link between the lower classes in India and my immigrant family in the U.K, both of whom sit comfortably this way.
